Once the hurly-burly of the domestic season is done, and the prestigious World Cup is taken care off, fans all across the World will be eagerly watching as Europe’s top clubs embark on summer tours across various countries to both getting back into shape and satisfying their global fanbase.
One of the most anticipated tournaments this summer is the Guiness International Champions Cup (ICC) which includes 8 of the top clubs in World football, who will take on each other in a spectacular tournament in the United States.
ICC’s Facebook page has been posting pictures promoting the various crunch clashes that are set to take place this summer, one of which involves current Premier League chasing rivals, Liverpool & Man City. The image posted promotes the rivalry between the two due to the close proximity of both cities. While that is true, Liverpool & Man City have never had a club rivalry despite the rivalry of the two cities, with Liverpool being more embroiled in a battle with Man City’s neighbours – Manchester United.
But either way, ICC’s pic was trying to make the point about how close these two clubs are to each other, except for one small error, the two clubs/cities have been marked wrongly. What is shown as Manchetser City, is actually Liverpool and vice versa. It may seem like a minute mistake, but when you realise the fact that they’re promoting the rivalry based on the geographical proximity, you’d expect them to get their geographical positioning right.
Facebook users were quick to catch the error and it should prove to be a PR disaster for ICC, which they are yet to address.
